Sometimes the question “what does the neighborhood need?” yields varied and complex responses. Community Asset Mapping is one way for community leaders and residents to visualize the existing built environment, and its potential connections to the trends and characteristics of an identified population. In this hands-on clinic, attendees will gain experience using maps and worksheets to develop neighborhood improvement strategies.
Planning-related educational objective:
Attendees will learn to employ tools to identify, strategize and connect community assets for building neighborhood resilience and place-making. The result of this approach is culturally-competent, contextually-sensitive neighborhood improvement strategies that incorporate the active engagement of residents and cross-sectional community partnerships.
